Your turn to laugh at me  :002: ... still need to remove nearside of fairing to wire up the heated grips properly ( currently connected directly to the battery ) as I cannot reach those pesky two accessory wires inside the fairing  ( come on Kwacker....another 3 inches of wiring would have been perfect  :003: )

 :008: it’s a doddle. Take a look at Jonathan Long video on YouTube, he talks you through every step.

Fitted Barkbuster handguards, much better quality than the Powerbronze ones I fitted on my last bike. Last week fitted R and G heated grips, neat little control unit tucks nicely on left side fairing black infill. Lots of heat and impact driver needed to remove bar ends. Top tip keep your hand out of moving bit of driver or it will hurt.

Quick blast to the coast, pro race cans are growing on me.

Fitted baffles to my Pro Race the other day, not been out to try them yet though so can't comment on whether they are any quieter.
Although I prefer the look of the Pro Race to the original I found the droning from the non baffled was starting to really get on my tits after a couple of hours.

Despite a very kind member sending me pics, I'm still trying to work out how to do this.

Simples  :062:

I got the baffles off Ebay, less than a tenner for the two. You need the 48mm diameter. Remove the Pro Race, slip the baffles into the cans, I lightly tapped them in using a piece of wood, making sure the fixing bolt hole is at the bottom. Drill a 6mm hole through the can in line with the fixing point, insert bolt and fix with a locknut. 30 minutes max  :002:

So the baffles go into the non slash end of the pro race cans, with the narrow end of the baffle pointing towards the rear, slash end, of the cans.
I take it you measured to the centre of the screw hole in the baflle, taped it in until flush, then measured the same distance on the can and drilled?

Did a caliper service including new seals, pads, bleed nipples, fluid and a good cleanup for the old girl. Haven't tested it yet but everything looked in good condition after 30K  :028:

Hi Nelix,
The baffles go in from the slash cut end, just imagine inserting the baffle, narrow end first, into the can whils't it is still on the bike (not that I did).
The wide end of the baffle is 48mm with a VERY slight flange on the end. The ProRace exhaust has a 48mm internal diameter so the baffle is a nice snug fit, hence the reason I put a piece of wood on the flange end and tapped it very lightly to encourage it to go in. It stops itself from going too far because of  the flange.
As said, make sure before you tap it in that the fixing bolt hole is lined up with the bottom of the ProRace. I then just sat it on the bench and eyed the drill into line with the bolt hole and drilled the hole. I put a 3mm pilot hole in first to check alignment and then opened it up to a 6mm hole for the bolt.

It really is a simple job. And due to the crap weather I still haven't tried it out  :003:
